timing is everything...

Not everything that comes out of my kitchen is finger lickin' good my friends. Oh no.  Many years ago, AH informed me there was really no need for me to ever make meatloaf again (no problem!) and I just cannot make belgian waffles anywhere near as well as my box mix can.  Go figure.

I made some cream of cauliflower and broccoli soup for dinner this week.  It was supposed to be just cream of cauliflower soup but I had some broccoli starting to lose its luster so I threw that in with it.  The addition wasn't the problem - just didn't have any zip.  I doubled the amount of dill....no help.  Some salt did help a little, but it still didn't make me want to get up and dance, and I like food to do that.  I finally figured it out when I put the dill away.  Master detective me, just a master.  Check this out.


Expired  in 2008!  Are you kidding me?  This just shouldn't happen to a girl who alphabetizes her spices, now should it?

I better go check the dates on the rest of them.  I'm afraid of what I'm going to find!  Wait, I'm just noticing I have two Cream of Tartar bottles in there.  Why are there two?  I don't even know why I have one!

All I have to say about this... Some day... We all turn into our mothers.

Ahhh! A fellow alphabetizer! Love it!
Hubby thinks me insane! But mine are also divided into categories - sweet and savory and alphabetized there-in.
I see something lurking in the back of your group though that makes my head pound - Lawry's! Unless they have stopped making it with MSG - let's just say - it is my gluten!
